Proposed four-storey facility would be located on the site of the band's Dublin studio

Conor Pope, The Irish Times

Plans for a U2 museum on the site of the band's recording studio in Dublin's docklands are at an advanced stage, with a planning application set to be lodged in the coming days.

Despite the fact that - along with Guinness, St Patrick, Oscar Wilde and, possibly, Michael Flatley's feet - U2 are Ireland's most famous export, there are no public spaces celebrating the band's achievements on the world stage.

Even the walls of graffiti which once surrounded their old studio at Windmill Lane have been levelled to make way for towers of glass and steel.

It is intended the four-storey museum will be dedicated to the band's archive and will include artefacts covering its 40-year story.
